    Highly versatile XF-AVC codec

    Enjoy an extensive range of high quality creative shooting options with the highly versatile XF-AVC H.264 codec. Shoot stunning 4K video at up to 410Mbps/10-bit for easy integration into existing 4K workflows and easily select the combination of resolution and codec type that best suits your production.

    Advanced Full HD image processing

    Over Sampling HD Processing is an advanced debayering algorithm for image processing that effectively utilises the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording. The camera captures a 4K image, the RGB channels are separated into three individual 8 megapixel 4K signals and the 4K RGB signals are then multiplexed and scaled down internally into a Full HD (1920x1080) signal. This improves the perceived resolution and allows you to record a significantly cleaner Full HD image.

    High Dynamic Range images with Canon Log2, Canon Log and Wide DR Gamma

    For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log2 Gamma captures the maximum range of tones, providing up to 15 stops of Dynamic Range. Widening the Dynamic Range by up to 15 stops enables the extremes of highlight and shadow details to be recorded, thus extending the scope of colour grading. If less dynamic grading is anticipated or you plan to mix with existing Cinema EOS footage, then Canon Log can be used, or where a faster workflow is required, then the Wide DR setting is ideal as it does not require grading, both will still provide 15-stops of dynamic range.

    Enhanced processing power with Dual DIGIC DV5

    Using Canon’s Dual DIGIC DV5 processors the EOS C300 Mark II has significantly more processing capability than its predecessor, enabling high bit rate 4K movies to be recorded, together with support for Canon Log2 Gamma and many other key camera functions.

    Capture moving subjects more accurately

    A significantly improved sensor readout speed produces even lower rolling shutter distortion – so even subjects on the move maintain their correct shape better.

    Easy realisation of your creative visions

    Record stunning 4K images internally

    You can simultaneously record stunning 4K/UHD images at up to 410Mbps/10-bit to dual internal CFast 2.0™ memory cards, 2K proxy files to SD card and output 4K RAW to external devices, for an efficient workflow. Utilise the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording, with higher quality and significantly cleaner results, thanks to Oversampling HD processing.

    Auto features: just pick up and shoot!

    The EOS C300 Mark II’s innovative automatic features let you concentrate on the action. These include Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 80% vertical and 80% horizontal coverage, Face Detection AF (with compatible lenses) and Auto white balance so you won't miss the shot. Enhanced AF offers the ability to select the AF speed (with compatible lenses) and AF subject tracking characteristics ensure that focusing is more natural.

    Shoot with confidence in any light

    Shoot anywhere and capture low-noise footage in all kinds of challenging shooting scenarios thanks to a wide ISO range up to ISO 102,400 that delivers enhanced sensitivity and unrivalled low light performance. Built-in ND filters provide a possible further 10 stops of exposure control (in expansion mode) in bright light or when a wide aperture is required.

    High quality audio superior to CD

    The EOS C300 Mark II supports LPCM 24-bit/48 kHz audio for sound quality that is superior to CD. It offers 4-channel input, including a mic jack, internal monaural mic and two XLR terminals, which allow multiple sound sources to be selected and mixed to record sound with a sense of ambience.

    Huge interchangeable lens choice, EF and PL mounts

    Expand your creative options by shooting with more than 90 of Canon's current interchangeable EF and EF Cinema lenses. Servo zoom support further increases shooting versatility. The camera’s EF lens mount can be switched to EF mount with Cinema Lock or to PL mount, and back again by an approved Canon service centre.

    Seamlessly integrate with professional workflows

    New XF-AVC format for easy integration

    The newly developed XF-AVC 4K file format is easily integrated into existing workflows, while simultaneous recording of 2K or Full HD Proxy files to the SD card in the same format, further increases efficiency in post-production.

    Wide choice of colour gamuts

    The EOS C300 Mark II offers a variety of colour gamuts to suit your workflow and final output medium, including BT.2020, Canon Cinema Gamut and DCI-P3.
